Richard Crossley wants to revolutionize birding.
The British author has developed the Crossley ID Guide. Instead of having one picture of each bird, it presents multiple images taken from different distances and angles in carefully designed photo spreads.
Crossley went with Euan Kerr down by the Mississippi in St Paul to demonstrate how the guide works. The only problem was, they couldn't find any birds. Then three fowl-like shapes flashed overhead.
